Top 3 Webinars of 2018

We are back. After a long holiday weekend, recharging with family and friends, I hope you are feeling ready to take on 2019.

Now, I could talk about how yet another year has come and gone all too quickly. I could talk about how much we’ve learned and how our industry has changed over the course of 2018, which is all important. But today, I’d rather show you.

So let’s cut to the chase—the reason you’re here. We’ve compiled our top 3 webinars for your enjoyment. Sit back, relax and maybe pop some popcorn. Enjoy.

3. Why Cash is Not King in Fundraising: Data on the power of asset gifts from 1 million nonprofit tax returns

Russell James, J.D., Ph.D., CFP®.

Take an inside look at the comprehensive results of Dr. Russell James’ most recent research. He investigates the psychological and practical aspects of why gifts of assets are so critical for high-growth fundraising, and discusses strategies for effectively pursuing these important gifts.

This is the most useful information and tips that I have heard on a webinar in a long time.  This will help us to show our leaders why we should be concentrating on non-cash gifts and most importantly, it’s now verified by an expert, Dr. Russell James.

Discover five key conversation drivers and practical ways to introduce planned giving to your donors and prospects.

I got several good tips and reminders around the relationship building aspects of donor prospecting. The presentation was directly on point, packed with good information, not padded. Thanks for sharing the lessons of a long professional career in a very complete and organized fashion.

1. New Tax Law: What it Means for Your Non Profit and Your Donors

Lynn M. Gaumer, J.D. and Larry Katzenstein

This record-breaking webinar (over 1,000 people signed up) is all about the ins and outs of the Tax Cuts and Jobs Act and the impact on the fundraising industry. Hear the details and how the legislation impacts your nonprofit and your donors.

Great clarity on the impacts of the new tax reform changes. This made me re-think of the donor and organizational benefits from these changes in a positive light. This information will help us be even better philanthropic advisors to our donors, which in turn will help reinforce the trust and commitment our donors have in our organization and our mission.
